isn't that chip going to be available next year. That 12 months of incremental improvements in the current hardware. Maybe we will see two revs of the PowerMac, a price drop and then a new chip that will be available only in the top of the line PowerMac.<br><br>[color:red]live free or die</font color=red>
Right JonnyCat<br>I read in a article a while back that basicaly said that the typical - PC user in a office setting useing MS office does not need a computer running faster then a 500 mhz PC. The computer is simply waitig for the user to make an input.<br><br> Certainly when it comes to games or high end grahics more mhz is better - But its gets to the point that even your monitor cannot refresh at that rate of mhz speed so it all becomes pointless to the end user.<br><br>IMO<br>The PC industrie has push the mhz speed out of a very seriouse market.\<br>The low end<br>the prosumer end<br>highend.<br><br>They just gave out great game boxes for 599 they could have raked in some bucks IMO<br><br>
